All about me......

I am retired and a wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt and I'm sure I am a few more things I don't even know about. I have been on this weight loss journey for most of my life and a few times have even reached my goal.

At this point I am pre-diabetic and still need to lose quite a bit of weight so it is time to get serious again. This time will be forever as I cannot keep doing this or feeling disgusted with myself.

I will continue to walk everyday ...

I will continue to walk everyday at least 5 days a week. I will do some kind of exercise every day. I will weight/measure all food including condiments. I will be accountable to myself and weigh in in front of another person to keep myself accountable.

My goal is to lose 5% of my body weight for this challenge and maybe a little more for good measure!

Personal Information:
Hi -

My name is Donna. My DH of 47 years and I live in central Florida most of the year. We have a little cabin in the mountains where we like to go and escape the summer heat.

I love to read, play computer games, garden and walk. I spend most Saturday mornings at the local yard sales and am forever searching for that special treasure.

My DH and I like to travel - especially cruises. We like unpacking once and sleeping in the same bed every night. And someone else takes care of everything else. But for 2014 we plan to see the USA. We've done quite a bit but have places we want to re-visit and take the grand with us this time.

We are blessed with two grown children (one son and one daughter) and a sweet teen-age granddaughter. We love spending time together and try to take the grand everywhere we go. She still likes to be with us so we consider each day a gift.

Hi Donna. I got home on Wednesday after 2 months traveling and visiting my daughters and their families. I had a wonderful time, but am so glad to be home. Tired and recovering from a couple of very long driving days. CA, CO, IL, MI, and PA were my major stops. Fun!

Hi, Donna. Finally, I am beginning to get a bit caught up on some of my Sparking. Don't know how I got so behind. Just wanted to say thank you for stopping by my "naked" blog a few weeks ago. You are so right!! We are seniors and we have finally arrived! I'm loving the water and happy to have a place where I can go for exercise!! Hope all is well! Love, Jeannie

Thanks for visiting my blog, "It Bears Repeating! Real Food." Focusing on my next installment of nutrition has kept me in line.

I appreciate your kind words. We are headed in Birmingham in about an hour where he will see the doctor who did his surgery last year. Things are getting pretty desperate and we still don't know what's going on. Keep praying please.
